RADICAL SELF-LOVE

RADICAL SELF-LOVE

“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” Audre Lorde
Radical Self-Love is an exhibition that offers three distinct positions on excavating cultural roots and worshipping them through personal journeys and subjective reinterpretations. Proudly embracing and caring for one’s origins and traditions, the works presented unravel the spiritual, political and social issues of the artists’ ancestries and often incorporates the artists’ personal image to narrate contemporary tales of diversity, individual challenges and global inclinations. The three artists all come from idiosyncratic backgrounds and each of them utilises their persona as a powerful medium, an instrument to articulate the nuances of identity constructions in the contemporary global society.
